Anatomy is, according to the Cambridge dictionary, the scientific study of the body and how its parts are arranged. Whether it is in natural sciences during your schooling, coming across a diagram in a leafed dictionary absent-mindedly or if you have studied medicine (and in this case bravo), you have necessarily come across these representations more or less schematic of a dissected body with all that that entails of fascination / repulsion. Complex machinery, even miraculous, the body is, indeed, fascinating by the tangle of complex organs that work together to keep us upright, seated, tired or awake, hangover or in good shape, in short, alive . Jason Freeny is a New York sculptor who previously worked for MTV Networks and ESPN before pursuing a solo career in 2010. If the relationship between anatomy and Jason Freeny at first seems unclear to you, wait until you see the man's work and you will understand! Creator of ultra-detailed sculptures, in 2015 he signed a contract with MightyJaxx who have since produced reproductions of his sculptures in the form of figurines. So what, Jason Freeny is it? Well first, the artist always takes an iconic figure from the world of childhood, a balloon sculpture, a gummi bear, or a cartoon character. Then he dissects it so that he can represent his anatomy. Full of humor, these figures are not crude and scary realism. Rather, they carry a child's imagination that wants to rationalize and explain the inexplicable.
So let's take a quick tour of the different worlds covered by the artist.
Looney Tunes :
From Tweety to Bugs Bunny to Taz, the artist's action figures on the Warner Bros universe are pretty hilarious and give a little glimpse of what goes on under Marvin the Martian's helmet!
